If one was abusing large amounts of adcodol in a "controlled" fashion ie using 80mg codiene 3 times daily for headaches and withdrawal relief purposes. Said person went to rehab and had been clean for 2 months with zero cravings. It is also worth noting that said person was clean for 3 days prior to rehab with the aid of "TeX 10" which was suggested by the rehab as a means to try come off before. Abuse was for the duration of around 2.5 years Would it be possible that said person was physically dependant rather than addicted. Would it be worth investigating at a official addiction expert.
